Week of October 21st - Ramblings

The weather has cooled, only in the low 80's beginning this week, with a promise of being much cooler by week's end. We strolled to the River House on Monday and enjoyed sitting outside on the deck. I am still nursing my left knee, still sore from a few weeks ago, can't seem to sit down long enough to let it heal (who can sit for a week?).
Alyzabeth has had her golf lessons, she loves playing with the "swing box" and takes a few swings when she walks by it; she played nine holes with Aiden Clark at Eagle Harbor on Wednesday and said she had fun playing with him. At school, they had a fun run and she completed 33 of the 36 laps. She said her two big toes was getting sore so stopped. That probably means she needs new sneakers, hopefully up one size.
More golfing on Thursday at River Bend. Then a practice round at South Hampton on Friday with golfer friend from Eagle Harbor, Aiden; that is where the U.S. Kids Sunday Tournament is. She is doing great with her slightly longer clubs. Here's a fox they saw at South Hampton on Friday (yesterday):

Off topic a bit, want to share this with all my Pride and Prejudice fans. I listen to lots of books driving to and from work, so stumbled upon this one at the public library and could not beleive it was written in the style of Jane Austen and was about Elizabeth Darcy about six years after her marriage to Mr. Darcey. It is also being made into a miniseries for PBS. I'll be watching it in early 2014!
Saturday (today) we went to the RAM again; hadn't been there in a very long time and afterwards had salad and pizza at Moon River. We love our old "neighborhood" favorites. We also ran into Mr. Bernie who used to work at the Wine Warehouse (closed for more than a year) and now has his own wine shop on 1080 Edgewood. We loved talking to him again about "value" red wines and were happy to reconnect. He has an appreciation for wine and can recommend low priced wines that have a good taste as he has tried them all and knows what we like. Since we were so close to the Edgewood Bakery, we just had to stop in and select a Halloween sweet treat! Yummy! A fun day for us all! Now to relax and watch some football, baseball (Go Red Sox!! - since this is Alyson writing this post!!) and NASCAR!

We are going to start a "leaf" garland/banner on November 1st. I saw it on someones blog; cut out a variety of leaf shapes on colored paper and each day write something that we are thankful for, then I plan to "clothes pin" each leaf to our display cord we have in the house. I think it will be a nice reminder of how blessed we are and add to the Fall decorations.

Next week is Halloween then the following week, we have a vacation planned to Key West. Many friends and family are flying in to meet up so should be a great time and a great place to relax!

Photos to follow of AA's golfing adventure tomorrow (Sunday)!
